Directions

Combine 1-ounce of butter and 1-ounce of flour to make a paste. Set aside. In a large heavy-bottomed saucepan, brown the beef in remaining 2 ounces butter and oil on a medium to high heat for 4 or 5 minutes until seared on all sides. Remove from pan and reserve.

Add onions and cook until translucent. Add bacon and cook until softened. Add carrots, celery, turnip, parsley, thyme, rosemary, oregano, and garlic. Add the butter and flour mixture. Stir to make sure ingredients are well-combined. Add the beef back and pour in the wine, making sure that it covers the ingredients. Bring to a boil and season with salt and freshly ground pepper.
